Thormesis is an atmospheric metal band and was founded in 2006 in Rothenburg ob der Tauber (southern Germany). Travos and Keltor (Totensucht) formed the origin. The first album "Gehet hin und kämpfet" (2008) was released as a self-production. For the second album, the band signed a deal with Düsterwald Productions and released „Vergangene Asche“ (2010).
Already in the following year Thormesis signed with AFM Records | Soulfood and released „Von Leere und Tod“ (2012). From this album the style changed to black metallic ways. The band released the following albums "Freier Wille - Freier Geist" (2015), "Trümmerfarben" (2017) and "The Sixth" (2019) together with MDD Records. Musically it changed more to an atmospheric metal with less black metal elements. For the first time, "The Sixth" also includes English titles and another groundbreaking musical orientation. As of 2022, the band will be releasing new music in collaboration with „Soundbath Productions“. The first single "Still The Claim" was released on February 4th, 2022.
Thormesis is an Atmospheric Metal band from southern Germany. They have already played on several stages in the country. These include the Ragnarök Festival, Woflszeit Festival or the Boarstream Open Air. Six studio albums have been released in the band's history. The seventh work was released in 2022 and is considered the band's most intense album.
The style is extreme metal with post-rock influences, which is characterized by dynamic rhythm changes. Initially, Germanic-pagan motifs were treated in the lyrics, on the more recent releases exclusively interpersonal and philosophical themes.
